Added DiffLines:

* HellHotel: The Edisons' motel. It's pretty normal right now, but it used to be called "VideoGame/ManiacMansion" before, and its owner Dr. Fred Edison was a brainwashed MadDoctor before the protagonists restored him to normal. Remnants of its creepy past are still there: they include a mummified Cousin Ted who stands nearby the hotel as a decorative statue, Dr. Fred's lab in the basement, and two alien tentacles (Green and Purple) who still reside in the building.

** Ben Franklin wanting to make the turkey the national bird is based on an urban myth. While Franklin preferred the turkey to the bald eagle (according to a letter he wrote to his daughter), his own suggestion for the Great Seal of the United States had no bird on it at all.

* LighterAndSofter: Compared to the original ''Maniac Mansion'', which had some pretty dark and gory parts. A key difference being that ''MM'' was like other Adventure Games in that you could get Dave's team killed.

** {{What Could Have Been}}: Razor was planned to return as the other returning playable Maniac Mansion character. Even in the final game, it's suggested she or Syd were members of Dave's team to rescue Sandy since Ed was traumatized by the hamster microwaving incident and Green Tentacle has his recording contract from last game (both of which only happen with Razor or Syd in the rescue party).



* NoCanonForTheWicked: Inverted; the game assumes the player [[VideogameCrueltyPotential put the hamster in the microwave]] in its predecessor, ''VideoGame/ManiacMansion''. Interestingly, this suggests that Razor or Syd was in the "canon" that finished Maniac Mansion.
